    Författare :Thomas Ekström; Teknisk logistik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Defence transformation; military logistics; supply chain; support chain; defence acquisition; Business Model; Public Private Participation; Cooperation and Partnership; Value-for-Money; performance; risk; multiple case study; misalignment; transformation av försvaret; militär logistik; försörjnings- och underhållskedja; försvarsanskaffning; affärsmodell; offentlig privat samverkan; valuta för pengarna; prestation; multipel fallstudie; inkonsekvens;

    Sammanfattning : Since the ending of the Cold War, the defence sector, particularly the areas of military logistics and defence acquisition, has been undergoing a comprehensive transformation. There are several factors that explain this transformation: changes in defence and security policies for nations and organisations; reductions in defence expenditure; participation in Peace Support Operations; Lessons Learned from these operations, especially in the area of logistics; revolutionary development in the area of Information and Communication Technology; emergence of novel Commercial Best Practises in the areas of business and business logistics; and changes in the legislation regarding the conduct of public procurement in Europe.
